Nine studies detail two kinds of models that simulate the dispersion of radionuclides in the sea, emphasizing biases that strongly impact the predictable skill and structures of the models, and considering as well the long-distance connections between the topical Atlantic and the African continent. They also review the history, geography, and climate of the adjoining oceans and the role they play in natural disasters. Most of the contributors are natural scientists, but scholars of business and economics present the longest papers, on numerical modelling marine pollutants exemplified by radioactivity dispersion, and marine natural product research in the western Indian Ocean. Other topics include Thai communities after 2004 as a case study of adaptive and growth outcomes following tsunami, time series analysis of the Indian Ocean dipole index, and meridional heat fluxes in the North Indian Ocean. Short communications look at the regeneration of nitrogen in the surface layer of the ocean, and understanding inter-annual to decadal variability in the tropical Atlantic.
